User Review  - aevaughn - LibraryThing

A great introduction to learning styles with examples of how to apply what is being explained. I'm bit concerned about the shallow explanations of the research and to me simplistic groupings. Perhaps that is all to the better though for the purposes of this book. Read full review

User Review  - Teacher Laura -

This was a fun, easy to read book that gives excellent insight on how children learn, their style and how to help them learn best. It is also helpful in understanding others and yourself with learning frustrations and how to change that. Lots of humor. Read full review
